It's never easy to be the son of a legend. Tim Tszyu's father Kostya Tszyu is revered as arguably Australia's greatest boxer ever! However, Tim Tszyu is well on the way to making a name for himself. On 15 May, the undefeated 24-year-old Sydney-sider gets his big chance in the spotlight with his first pay-per-view Main Event billing.
It won't be an easy first fight for Tim Tszyu as his opponent, Joel Camilleri, is no chump. In fact, he is the current Australian Super Welterweight champ. At 28, Joel Camilleri has more experience on his side, but with five losses to go with his 17 wins, he's certainly a beatable opponent. Can the older boxer out-fox the rising star?
It makes for an intriguing contest, but Tim Tszyu's father believes his son is on the cusp of a meteoric rise in the boxing world. He said as much to Main Event, declaring; "Tim's not far away from reaching a big, important stage in his career. Maybe a year and a half, two years, I think. When he started walking, he already had the gloves on. It's destiny."
